Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery: A Practical Guide


Glaucoma affects millions of people worldwide and is the second leading cause of blindness. Major advances in innovative surgical techniques, collectively termed minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), have revolutionized the field. These groundbreaking ophthalmic surgery approaches are effective, are not bleb-dependent, and they result in fewer complications. Authored by a Who’s Who of prominent experts in the MIGS movement, this book represents the most comprehensive book written to date on the subject.

Leading glaucoma surgeons offer unique perspectives and experience gleaned from developing and mastering these state-of-the-art techniques. The first four sections discuss fundamental concepts of eye anatomy and structure, outflow implications, and aqueous production. The remaining sections cover the latest cutting-edge procedures elucidated through text descriptions and case studies, with the final two chapters offering insights into how to best incorporate MIGS into your practice and possibilities for combining MIGS procedures to expand the treatment algorithm for patients with more moderate to advanced disease. Meticulous, step-by-step drawings, photos, and surgical videos further delineate advanced MIGS techniques.

Glaucoma Surgery (Developments in Ophthalmology)


P. Bettin (Editor), P.T. Khaw (Editor), F. Bandello (Series Editor)


Book Description

Publication Date: April 30, 2012 | ISBN-10: 3805599374 | ISBN-13: 978-3805599375 | Edition: 1

In this volume of Developments in Ophthalmology, a panel of renowned glaucoma surgeons reports its findings and the updated evidence-based literature data on indications, outcomes, pearls and pitfalls of techniques in which they all have an undisputable ‘hands-on’ everyday experience. The publication begins with chapters on conventional procedures, i.e. trabeculectomy (still the gold standard), deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device implantation explicitly focusing on postoperative management. The role of the ocular surface in glaucoma surgery and the issue of wound healing and its modulation through antimetabolites are further discussed. In the second part, the attention shifts to new techniques which still have a marginal role, but are promising for particular indications. In the last part, the greatest challenges of glaucoma surgery such as the surgical approach to angle closure, concomitant glaucoma and cataract as well as pediatric glaucoma are discussed in detail. Finally, the last chapter is dedicated to cyclodestructive techniques. This volume is recommended to glaucoma surgeons and glaucoma specialists seeking information on the best therapy for their patients, but also to general ophthalmologists who refer their patients for surgery or follow them up afterwards.

Gonioscopy is a very important differential diagnostic tool that permits assessment of the anterior chamber angle and correct classification of glaucoma as a basis for specific treatment. This book clearly explains how to perform gonioscopy to best effect. The anatomy of the chamber angle is systematically described, and the impact of age, developmental disorders, and other pathologies on the chamber angle is explained. Particular attention is focused on primary and secondary open-angle and angle-closure glaucomas. In each case, the role of gonioscopy in evaluating the chamber angle is described with the help of many photographs and illustrations. The importance of knowledge of the chamber angle for laser treatment and surgery is fully explained, and the impact of medications is discussed. The practitioner will find in Gonioscopy all the information required to use the technique effectively in diagnosis and treatment.

Progression of Glaucoma : WGA Consensus Series 8

by Weinreb, R.N.; Garway-Health, D.F.

Progression of Glaucoma is the topic of the eighth World Glaucoma Association Consensus. There has been considerable attention to the diagnosis of glaucoma during the past twenty years. In fact, this was the topic of the inaugural WGA consensus report in 2003. During the past decade, however, numerous studies have been undertaken to also investigate the progression of glaucoma. With substantial improvement in existing diagnostic technologies and the rapid development of others, one can better determine whether there has been progressive disease. Hence, the results of this report will have broad and significant impact on clinical practice and glaucoma research. The global faculty, consisting of leading authorities on the clinical and scientific aspects of glaucoma progression, met in Paris on June 28, 2011, just prior to the World Glaucoma Congress, to discuss the reports and refine the consensus statements.As with prior meetings, it was a daunting task to seek and obtain consensus on such a complicated and nuanced subject. It is unclear how each of us decides how we practice, and evidence to guide us often is sparse. Collection of patient data to study progression often takes years. Hence, this consensus, as with the others, is based not only on the published literature, but also on expert opinion. Although consensus does not replace and is not a surrogate for scientific investigation, it does provide considerable value, especially when the desired evidence is lacking. The goal of this consensus is to provide a foundation for identifying progression of glaucoma and how it can be best done in clinical practice. Identification of those areas for which we have little evidence and, therefore, the need for additional research always is a high priority. We hope that this consensus report will serve as a benchmark of our understanding. However, this consensus report, as with each of the others, is intended to be fluid. It is expected that it will be revised and improved with the emergence of new evidence.
